The AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal today claimed that the BJP was planning "wrongdoings" in the rest of the polls and hinted that the party's PM candidate Narendra Modi might have been putting the Election Commission on the back foot with his recent attack on the poll panel.
"Modi targeting EC despite EC being soft on him and ignoring his misdeeds," Kejriwal said on Twitter.
"Sources suggest BJP planning wrongdoings in balance phases of elections. So, is Modi just putting EC on defensive in advance?" he said.
At a rally in West Bengal yesterday, Modi accused the Election Commission of not acting impartially and dared it to take action against him if he was wrong.
"I am levelling a serious charge against the Election Commission. You have failed to stop rigging and violence in West Bengal, Bihar and parts of western Uttar Pradesh," Modi had said.
"Why are you not acting? What is your intention? If you feel what I am saying now is wrong, then you are free to lodge another case against me... Democracy doesn't work like this. I know how much rigging took place in the elections on April 30... Isn't it the EC's responsibility to conduct peaceful and fair polls?" he had asked.
The AAP had earlier approached the EC for more central forces in Varanasi after attacks on its volunteers. It has also asked that the activities at polling booths be video-recorded in order to avoid any kind of rigging during the election.

Good point! "Wrongdoing" is in BJP's DNA.
